House Numbers

We live in one of those houses that are hard to find.  If you live in one too you know what I am talking about.  When someone is coming over for the first time you need to provide a map, written directions, and all of your numbers just in case.  Pizza delivery people do not like us.  The mail route is constantly changing, and we seem to be at the break point.  Often I watch the mail person deliver mail to my neighbours but then turn and go back, and another carrier delivers to our house later in the day.  We just live in one of those houses.

So if you finally find us, I wanted you to be assured that you are in the right spot.  In case you missed the 4 sets of house numbers, yes that’s right 4 sets of house numbers on your way to the front door, here is the 5th.

These were super easy to make.  I bought the pillows already made because seriously who can make pillows for $9.00.  Technology is my friend, I started with a font I liked in Word and then enlarged in on the printer until it was the right size.  Then using a sheet of felt (not the little ones but a 36″x36″ sheet) purchased at Walmart for $5.00, I cut out the numbers.  I pinned the felt numbers to the pillows and sewed then on with embroidery floss.

    This is like living on a street no one has heard of.

    cute! We live on a fairly busy street, but I’ve been kind of surprised since we moved at the number of people who have no idea where we are when I describe it to them. O well 😛
